‘ I don’t think John and myself ever had the sort of range they do’
(FAR OUT MAGAZINE) — When it comes to an appreciation for vocal abilities, it’s hard to get higher praise than Sir Paul McCartney. In a band that had three great singers (and one very fine singer – justice for Ringo), McCartney easily had the most range and dynamics in The Beatles. John Lennon had raw power, George Harrison had earnest charm, but Paul McCartney was the singer, which he proved by taking high harmonies that few others could match, including on ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’ and ‘The End’.
So which band did McCartney heap his praise on to when reportedly asked by a session musician? Maybe a group well known for their harmonies, like Fleetwood Mac? Perhaps a band that carried on The Beatles signature sound, like Electric Light Orchestra? Or maybe just a band with a damn good high tenor singer like himself – maybe Boston or The Police.
The answer, it turns out, was none of the above.
